Geith, a world leader in the design and manufacture of couplers and attachment products for excavators, has launched a new pallet fork attachment for wheeled and tracked excavators from 8 to 21 tonne.
The robust pallet fork attachment increases the versatility of wheeled and tracked excavators on construction sites by enabling them to pick up and handle pallets, an important advantage on sites that are inaccessible to telescopic handlers. Moreover, the 360° rotation of the excavator provides a larger working envelope for the pallet fork compared to a telescopic handler.
The pallet fork attachment can be mounted via a coupler or directly on to the excavator. The pallet fork features tines which can be moved across the length of the rack. Locking pins prevent the tines from moving once in place on the rack. The tines can be easily removed through the centre of the bottom rack.
The high quality tines have a safety factor of 3:1 and the mounting frame uses gussets and a box section design for additional strengthening.
